Studio Mumbai off-site construction photographs

Some exciting updates this afternoon from India: we’ve received via email a large group of photographs from Sam Barclay, one of the team who are currently assembling the Studio Mumbai structure in their workshop yard in Mumbai (orginal concept drawing shown above, to refresh your memories!). Once the team have tested construction methods, structural feasibility and material finishes, the building will be disassembled and transported in parts to London, for final assembly, on-site, at the V&A in the Cast Courts.

The image above shows a large-scale model which the Studio Mumbai team developed as a proof-of-concept. The photograph below depicts the full-scale version being assembled, with just the wooden frame exposed, before the plaster panels are applied.
